So before the summer ends where the rain starts pouring almost every day, our family went to Baguio for a quick getaway.
We departed at 9am and stopped for breakfast along NLEx for an hour.
It rained the whole afternoon, so we ended our day hearing a mass and a simple family dinner at SM Baguio. End of Day 1.
Next day was a beautiful morning and we decided to go to Burnham Park to stroll and let the kids enjoy biking. Rental fee is 50php per hour.
I could see on Cloud’s face that he enjoyed a lot our first family biking session.
He also enjoyed the view of a lot of people around him. Burnham Park is indeed one of the best places in Baguio for a family bonding. Sadly, we weren’t able to rent a boat since the rain is about to start after our biking session. Next time son!
Our next stop: Mini Golf at Camp John Hay. It has 18 golf courses that represent different animals which makes the game more enjoyable for kids and kids at heart. You can rent your own golf club and ball at the information desk. They will also provide your own scorecard. Rental fee is for 100php++.
This is my second time to be here and I was looking forward to seeing Cloud grabbing his own golf club but since the weather was crazy (aaraw at uulan). We prefer to stay inside the car while waiting for the others to finish their game.
Later on, we finally went outside when Cloud feels grumpy and we just let him explore the playground beside the golf course.
I am proud of my son because he has no fear in animals (unlike me!) In fact, he almost cried when the picture taking has finished. Again, next time son.
The rain started pouring heavily and decided to call it a day.
The rain did not stop so we stayed at the condominium that night and had our dinner delivered by Jollibee hehe. End of Day 2.
A sunny morning at La Trinidad, Benguet! Our Baguio getaway is not complete without the fresh strawberry picking. 1 kilo of strawberry costs 400php. You can also take photos of yourself with these blooming sunflowers for 20php / unlimited shots.
Every trip is meaningless without grabbing some pasalubong.
Where to buy the best Baguio delicacies? Where else could that be? Of course, at Good Shepherd! After we bought pasalubong, we went back to Bonbel Condominium to check out and took some family pictures before we finally leave the place.

I was left in awe when I stepped inside because wow! It feels so historical and I always get fascinated with old houses turned into a restaurant.
We were also able to grab some interesting books for Cloud at Mt. Cloud Bookshop. Isn’t that cool?!
More of Hill Station and Mt. Cloud Bookshop soon on my blog because they deserve a separate post.
Overall, it was indeed an enjoyable family experience in Baguio City!
So how did you end your summer?
